Hi, I'm Daniel. I am an attorney, mediator, and conflict resolution coach.
I grew up in Northern California, USA, and still live here nearby lots of family.
I went to law school at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. The beach is my happy place. And I made a lot of great friends there.
While I was in law school, I earned a Master’s Degree in Dispute Resolution from Pepperdine University’s Straus Institute. I love the collaborative approach to conflict. It takes everyone’s needs into account. It’s me *and* you instead of me *versus* you.
After school, I became an attorney, a mediator, and a conflict resolution coach. I help business owners and managers to resolve the conflicts that get in the way of business goals, such as married business owners struggling with threats to the success of the marriage and business or a commercial property owner in negotiation with a challenging tenant.
I am a teacher at heart, and I’ve had the honor of teaching an MBA course on Conflict Resolution and Management for La Sierra University’s business school. You can call me professor, if you like.
In my personal life, I am a divorced father of four wonderful children—three boys and a girl. I’m no stranger to conflict in my own life. And I know the pain of desiring to create more love and connection, but not knowing how. It has become my purpose and my passion to help people learn the communication and conflict resolution skills they need to navigate pain, difficulty, and disconnection so that they can create the empathetic and supportive relationships they desire.
